©Rachel Boillot

Silent Ballad by American photographer Rachel Boillot is a documentary project which explores musical heritage in the mountains of East Tennessee.

Religious belief, the rural landscape, and the old-time music tradition all inform this portrait of place. 

Rachel Boillot is a 30 year-old photographer, filmmaker, and educator based in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee, USA. She was raised in the suburbs of New York, but for a two year hiatus in Singapore starting when she was eight years old. Rachel teaches in the Art Department at Lincoln Memorial University, is Director and Co-Producer of the Cumberland Folklife series of documentary films, and maintains her independent photography practice in East Tennessee where she started her project Silent Ballad.
